Welcome! - Can you believe it's November 1st! Wow time is flying by quickly. - Thanks for stopping by today.
It's time to join in with Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art) for Photo Art Friday and also Nancy (A Rural Journal) for Random 5 Friday.
I had a couple of things in mind for this and went with two different photo's of sculpture's around town that have some kind of an "embrace" in them.
Click to Enlarge Photos.
The first is titled: Mother and Child and sits at the Carnegie Art Center in Walla Walla. - I find it to be a rather "odd" looking sculpture. It depicts a Mother embracing her child but for the life of me I really don't see that in the sculpture. What do you think? I added some lyrics from Simon & Garfunkel's, Mother and Child Reunion and used Bonnies newest texture,
Aged Vignette and some effects from Pic Monkey.
Which leads me to Random Thought #1 - We have some "Weird" art work here in Walla Walla. If this doesn't prove it perhaps you'll believe me when you see the one below.
This is the back side of a sculpture called, Large Covered Wagon which sits in Pioneer Park. These two siblings seem to be (embracing) each other in a rather strange way. Again the same texture as the 1st photo was used and some Pic Monkey effects as well.
Random Thought #2 - I bought "Way to Much" Halloween candy. We only had 25 kids show up and I've got enough candy left over to last us for the next couple of months. I miss the old days when you got lots of Trick-or-Treaters coming to your door. I think it's fun seeing the kids all dressed up in their costumes.
This was one of the kids Trick-or-Treating downtown yesterday. She let me take her picture (with her mom's permission). She's a Lollypop Princess.
Random Thought #3 - Halloween isn't just for kids. The parents taking the kids out downtown really go all out with costumes. Here are a couple of my favorite's from yesterday.
See that pirate in the corner....
Random Thought #4 - Carving pumpkins is hard work but not nearly as hard as getting a decent picture of them was. - I actually didn't do any of the carving of the pumpkins this year. My hands were hurting from trimming my rose bushes earlier in the day. Hubby & Greta did most of the carving. For some reason I could not get my camera to take a decent picture without blurring this year. This is the best one I got.
Random Thought #5 - Sad as it is another Halloween has come and gone and now it's time to move on to Turkey Day! One last parting shot of Halloween....
I have no clue who any of the people in my photo's today are but they were more then happy to let me snap their photo's. Although this guy looks a little glum. Perhaps he ate to much candy!
Have a great weekend. Don't forget to stop by Nancy and Bonnie's blogs and check out some Random Thoughts and some awesome photo art.
